The bodywork on my vx220 is immaculate as it always been garaged during my ownership however i have just paid £300.00 to have the bodywork professionally detailed to remove air polution/oxidiation etc. Furthermore i have just had the soft top roof professionally proofed aswell-just in case i ever get caught in a rain shower. The overall standard of the bodywork is in excellent condition and will not dissapoint.
This vx220 turbo also has the highest specification available when being ordered from the factory,all the extra boxes were ticked from new,as the pictures demostrate it comes with the extremely benefical additional soundproofing which makes a great difference-its very quiet and well insulated inside the car. This vx220 turbo also comes with the upgraded speakers/sound system which means you can actually hear the radio/cd player whilst driving if you so desire.
This VX220 has had only 4 previous owners and is in fantastic condition for its age both inside and out, the MOT runs until July 2013, and is currently sorn for the winter months. It has recently had a full service which included oil,oil filter,spark plugs etc. I have also recently had the paintwork professionally detailed to remove air polution/oxidiation etc,although the gentleman carry out the detailing commentated on the excellent condition of the paintwork ie no swirl marks etc.The VX220 is used as a 3rd/4th car so it spends alot of its time in dry storage,so its very rarely seen rain as the majority of the time its in the garage safetly away from the horrendous weather we seem to endure in the UK.
This vx220 has recently had two new tyres(still 6mm on the other two tyres so virtually new) all tryres are the OEM Briidgestone Pontenza tyres the engine mounts were also replaced in April 2010 with the all important cambelt being replaced at 24,822 miles. Furthermore my car benefits from Mintex brake pads being fitted on both the front and rear.
This car has been extremely well looked after and is getting very rare and hard to find in this condition now days. It is a credit to its former owner and will not fail to impress viewing is highly recommended as pictures do not do this car no justice. Turns heads wherever it goes. All paperwork is present and it is ready to go. It is also fully HPI clear with a recent report to with it. Any inspection is welcomed.I have a full folder of receipts and paperwork for the car. Im in no rush to sell and i would like the car to go to a good home. This car will certainly only go up in value especially with this mileage and in this condition.
I can assure that the photos do not do this car justice with a personal plate on this car you would really struggle to tell if the car was only 12 months old i really cant convey in words how exceptional this vx220 is,its an absolute pleasure to own and drive this car.
The sole reason for the sale of my vx220 is that or either the exige or vx220 had to be sold and i have decided to keep my lotus exige.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, either by phone or email or text, further photos are also available on request however please bear in mind all photos are taken with an iphone 5 and they really do not do the car justice,a viewing of the car is highly recommended.
